Lucky 13

I'm feeling lucky today!  

I finally have the Distress Crayons... or should I say I finally got around to ordering them.  I don't have a lot of time but I really wanted to try out my crayon's, leather paper and new stencils. 

OK, really quick... here it is!

So happy!


With St. Patricks Day so close I thought I would make a clover and the mini heart die is perfect.  Add distress inks and water!  Instant Clover...  plus the leathery tag from the tag and tie die and some inky ribbon.

I stamped the inked leather tag.  I coloured a small corner with the peeled paint crayon then wiped the "13" with a wipe.


Great subtle layer!  Using texture paste for the "LUCKY".  Once it dried I used twisted citron distress crayon just on the edge.  


Metal Bucket of distress crayons


The mini hearts make a great clover.


Check out how mice the distress crayon twisted citron looks on crackle paste.  It worked!


Get you're crayons out, stencils and layer!


The tan leather tag inked with greens looks awesome.


Topped of with inky ribbon and a green gumdrop.



Not bad for a 20 minute tag.  

Thanks Emerald Creek Craft Supplies for bringing in all these fun crafty things!

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
